I have a dear affinity for the seaside, salt spray on my face, sea breeze in my hair, and the crash of waves upon the shore. I love the colors of the seaside islands in their muted earthy hues mixed with a pop of colorful houses and budding bushes. I love seeing the bustling sidewalks as people go to and fro with a destination in mind and a memory to make, but I also love to sit by the water with a good book and soak up the tranquility of the oceans song lulling against the sand. 

On our trip to Galveston this summer I made sure to soak up everything I love about the seaside, which really included me asking my dad to pull over by all the colorful beach houses to take pictures and then making my brother walk by all the old cottages on one of the main streets to snap more pictures. There always seems to be something simple about the seaside which is probably why I keep going back:)

I decided to go with simple and natural pastel vibes for our day exploring the island and settled on this vintage dress I inherited from my grandmother. Since the day consisted of walking in the sun I finished off my look with my summer boater hat, comfortable walking sandals, my brown woven leather purse, and well tinted black sunglasses. 

Are you a fan of the seaside?
